Duffy’s Partners with Kristina Wandzilak’s Full Circle Team

At Duffy’s, we’re committed to the long-term success of our guests. Every day, we watch people leave our campus transformed, inspired, and ready to live the changed life they learned how to live during treatment.

Throwback Thursdays: Our old Living Room

Since the beginning, Duffy’s has never quite looked like your typical rehab center. Our humble roots and family run business style has led to a relaxing and home-like environment—so different from the clinical, institutional feel of most treatment facilities. Check out these old pictures of Duffy’s living room and entry way back in the day: Definitely home-like—snazzy furniture and all. Can’t say we miss everything, but those chandeliers look pretty...
